For years now, Scarlett Bernard has counted on two things: her ability to nullify magic, and Shadow, the bargest who guards Scarlett with her life. But after a sudden revelation turns Scarlett’s world upside down, she panics and leaves town without warning, leaving Shadow with her partner, Jesse. In the chaos that follows, the bargest is stolen—and Jesse nearly dies from a brutal psychic assault.
It seems that an old enemy has returned for revenge…and the attack on Shadow was only the beginning. As Scarlett races home to find the bargest and rescue her friends, she is dragged deeper into a terrifying legend that has somehow found its way to present-day Los Angeles.
Now she will have to recruit every possible ally for a battle that will test her null ability to the limit. Scarlett has been in over her head before, but now she risks losing everything…and she’s never had more to lose.

Book 2 of the Scarlett Bernard series
As a null, Scarlett Bernard possesses a rare ability to counteract the supernatural by instantly neutralizing spells and magical forces. For years she has used her gift to scrub crime scenes of any magical traces, helping the powerful paranormal communities of Los Angeles stay hidden. But after LAPD detective Jesse Cruz discovered Scarlett’s secret, he made a bargain with her: solve a particularly grisly murder case, and he would stay silent about the city’s unearthly underworld.
Now two dead witches are found a few days before Christmas, and Scarlett is once again strong-armed into assisting the investigation. She soon finds a connection between the murders and her own former mentor, Olivia, a null who mysteriously turned into a vampire and who harbors her own sinister agenda. Now Scarlett must revisit her painful past to find Olivia—unless the blood-drenched present claims her life first.

TRAIL OF DEAD has an interesting plot, characters, and action scenes. It is a refreshing take on the supernatural world. Scarlett Bernard is a cleaner, meaning she cleans up messes left by the supernatural world. She is a NULL, someone who has no magic or can nullify magic when they get within a certain radius of her. When Vampires, werewolves get in her radius they are human again. A Witches magic does not work around her. When her friends and family are now in danger she is on a timeline to find the one who is behind the killing of the Witches. She knows that her old mentor Olivia is somehow behind it all, but finding her is another matter. This is such a great series to read and the characters are very likeable, that I recommend it to everyone who loves Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. I give TRAIL OF DEAD 4/ 5 stars.
